Williams Week – 10th August 2020 – The Week in Review

A round-up of interesting Williams related stories found on the web this week:

“Because he’s confident, he has proven his speed, his fitness which you really need in Formula 1 now, and his feedback because Williams have made good progress from last year to this year. But we need to see him against someone that’s also very competitive.” – Jenson Button

Button wants to see Russell alongside a competitive teammate

“I can’t think of any other time that’s happened. It’s the first time on pure pace we’ve actually been quicker than another car. That was such a nice feeling!” – George Russell

Russell relief after finally “overtaking a car that isn’t a Williams” for the first time

Russell was potentially in the running for a promotion to the world champions as early as next year, but deputy team principal Claire Williams made it clear she wanted him to see out his contract with the team.

George Russell has ‘complete faith’ in Mercedes

“I think it’s going to be a really interesting and exciting weekend and I wouldn’t be surprised If Pirelli bump up the pressures following last week’s blow-ups so I think we’ll be in for a good race for Sunday.” – George Russell

Williams ready to ‘capitalise’ on softer tyre strategies at 70th anniversary GP

“They’re that little bit [too] far away at the moment, but if we can close that gap then there [is] potentially points to be had purely on merit, rather than – at the moment – relying on quite a lot of other people’s misfortune.” – Dave Robson

Williams can get “points on merit” if it can close gap to “gaggle” of F1 rivals
